I have often had lunches at this restaurant and for only 20 dollars one is able to order soup or garlic bread, a main course and a glass of wine from the special Lunchtime menu. The food is very good and I have enjoyed every experience at this friendly restaurant. If you are on holiday in the area, at lunch... More

We ate here with local friends on Valentine's Day & the place was very busy but the staff coped very well & provided cheerful, efficient service. The food was delicious, all the party were happy with their dishes, the wine was good too. I would happily recommend this restaurant.

I will add that New Zealand as a whole amazed me with their fantastic food. Its all rather expensive but really tasty. Aubergine was no exception, nice relaxed atmosphere, lovely food, good wine. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to the fact I love Creme Brulee and I LOVE it made to perfection. Aubergines didn't... More

We stumbled across Aubergine while searching for a place to eat in Takapuna. They have outside seating, but we chose to sit inside so as not to be bothered by smoke. They had some good value lunch offers, which included a starter and a mains course. The soup starter was good and the salmon main course was excellent. Service was... More
